Vinson & Elkins advised Plains All American Pipeline in connection with the formation of Red Oak Pipeline LLC, a 50/50 joint venture with Phillips 66 to develop and operate the Red Oak Pipeline system.

The pipeline system will provide crude oil transportation service from Cushing, Oklahoma, and the Permian Basin in West Texas to Corpus Christi, Ingleside, Houston and Beaumont, Texas. Plains will lead project construction on behalf of the joint venture, and Phillips 66 will operate the pipeline, which is expected to cost approximately $2.5 billion.

The V&E corporate team was led by partner Doug Bland and associate Yianni Georgeton, with assistance from partner John Lynch; partner Darren Tucker and counsel David Smith.
